Thanks very much.

I can't connect to OCR radio! I can connect ot Rainwave just fine, but everytime I try to connect to OC radio. It just pauses at the connecting part and nothing happens. It eventually starts flickering between 'Connecting' and 'AE2DE7E50B'
Why is this happening?
The US relay is experiencing some difficulties right now. Don't panic - it'll come back online eventually.
Unfortunately the US OCR relay is our largest relay, which causes a chain reaction of people going to the Ormgas Swedish OCR relay or to Rainwave or V-wave. And we simply don't have the capacity on those servers to handle the load, making all stations problematic. Patience, please.

I need a little help running OCR Radio right now. I need some grunt work done: the program that used to keep the radio auto-updated with the latest remixes broke, and I don't have the time to rewrite the program, since I'm hard at work on the next version of the site. (and the new site version would make any fixes to the program completely obsolete)
I need help with:
1. Keeping the site up to date with the latest remixes (and there's a backlog of remixes that need to go up)
2. Posting the OCR albums to the site. It's my understanding that some songs on these albums are also numbered OCR releases, meaning you'd have to weed out the numbered ones off the current radio playlist before posting the albums.
It's tedious, largely thankless ID3 tagging grunt work, but until the new site version is ready it needs to be done. All the other Rainwave staff is too busy with tasks for the other stations or their own personal lives to do this job, we have nobody dedicated to OCR Radio.
Couple side notes, we've added a 3rd relay graciously donated by a listener. It acts as a failover relay in case the primary one has difficulties again. (those difficulties were resolved in under a day, but still...) I've also gotten email notifications of 2 replies to this thread, that should appear after my last post, and yet I can't see them here. (edit: I can see my own post appears here, so really, this is a mystery)
Are any remixer's looking to host an official OCR show/podcast?
I can help!

It would require some maintenance and work, but we are capable of live show hosting. (but not recorded shows) More work on this is being done to make it smoother for the next site version.
Still require help getting remixes up, though.

I got the help I needed from TehDonut, and I spent this afternoon fixing the updating script so that nobody's got an extremely tedious, continuous task.

finally tuned into the radio, I had to download WinAMP to do it, but I finally got it....
Yes, that's documented in the help page. We stream in a format that's not supported by major media players. It does, however, sound better at lower bitrates, which allows us to support a lot more listeners.
it's flippin' awesome...There are so many badass remixes I wouldn't even find otherwise without the radio, and with as many remixes as there are on the site...you won't have to go *ahem* format on it...although having a DJ every now and then would be nice...
That's really difficult for us to do right now (we only have it working on the alternate station, V-wave) but we're working on it.

What do you all think would be the best app to use for http://ormgas.rainwave.cc/?
There's no best app. Just use whatever player you have that supports streams.
Just use Winamp. It's the bee's knees.

pffbt - stick with VLC player! uses less resources and it's an all-around more versatile application anyway!

Awesome! i gotta ask, is this on SHOUTCast or AOL radio? I love being able to play all the music i have in Winamp.
Jaeman, you can check the supported players here:
Winamp 5 is OK, Winamp 2 doesn't work.

No and no, this is entirely independent.

I have a question...last time I tuned in, I couldn't help but notice that there's some VGM mixed into the station now...is this just in addition to the remixes on the site? Or did the format change for some reason?

OC Remix should be 100% OCR only. If you were hearing VGM, it's very likely you were listening to one of the other stations.

Hahah, glad you enjoy it. With the new server I should now be able to focus all my efforts on the next site version. I'm excited to finally have a clean slate to do it.

using one of the programs the list said would work to use (foobar2000) i couldnt connect or ormgas, but could to dracoirs, is it the same?
Yes, they're both the same station, just different relays.
